Purposed freedom against a defeated foe

I love reading the old covenant and seeing how it all points to Jesus.

I love reading and seeing ALL the law, prophecies, proverbs and history perfectly come together, fulfilled in Jesus.

I love looking at scripture and realizing IT  IS DONE.

It is finished!

The prophet Isaiah is a Gospel prophet.

Isaiah could see so far into the future that he could describe Jesus on the cross even better than his own disciples who physically saw Him on the cross (see Isaiah 53).

Isaiah could see so well into the future that he could see the finished work of Jesus, perfectly well ...

... even the defeat of satan!

Yes, but does he say so?

In the middle of a beautiful prophecy of God's Grace for Israel, Isaiah reveals the purpose of God's Love.

He had just prophesied how that God would free His people (Israel - those who prevail in Elohim) from the bondage of Babylon (meaning deception through mixture) and Assyria (meaning steps, i.e. any steps to follow to become - to walk straight by yourself, to level yourself, to self-preservation... or the law to  be followed to set yourself straight and being self-righteousness through it).

Defeat of the deceiving one pronounced

At the center of all this is the prophecy of the defeat of the self-exalted one, satan himself. He is the one who originally exalted himself, the caused of deception. (see verses 9- 20)

yet ...

They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms (verse 16).


With a purposeful wordplay

We find a very interesting Greek wordplay in verses 26 and 27 with the word yaw-ats', a primitive root word that means to advise; to deliberate (made to be in liberty) or resolve: to advise, to consult, to counsel, and according to Strongs also to determine, devise, guide or purpose.

By keeping this in mind, that is purpose as God's deliberation or deliverance, His resolve for the divide between man and God, let's now read the purpose of this oracle as penned by God through Isaiah:

The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying,

Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass;

and as I have purposed [deliberated, resolved], so shall it stand:

That I will break the Assyrian [steps or recipe or law to own preservation] in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.

This is the purpose [deliberation, resolution] that is purposed [deliberated, resolved] upon the whole earth:

and this is the hand [Jesus] that is stretched out upon all the nations.

For the LORD of hosts hath purposed [deliberated, resolved],

and who shall disannul it?

and his hand [Jesus] is stretched out,

and who shall turn it back? Isa 14:24-27

Purposefully ending the oracle with a further wordplay

What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded H3245 Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it. Isa 14:32

The last verse here brings about a point of clarity with the word founded used.  The word is a primitive Greek root word pronounced yâsad with a kind of poetic wordplay when used with our word yaw-ats' above. Yâsad, however, means to set; firmly establish; to sit down together, to settle, to ordain or to fix.

Such beautiful poetry and of the One and Only Truth!

just read the whole chapter again. It is an awesome blessing revealing Jesus and the finished work of the cross right there in the old covenant.

We should never accept our adverse circumstances by not speaking to the mountain when we are purposefully founded and established on the Rock, our Jesus!

Go on ... behold the Rock from whence you are hewn!

We have been settled and deliberated and resolved by the cross to rule over the oppressor, finding rest and peace in the finished work of Yah'shua Jesus, forever!
